My Love
Russell Powell Jacoby (1862–1899)
 
(Her Portrait)

MY love is beautiful and sweet.
All good and gentle graces meet
In her, in loveliness complete.
 
My love is precious. Nor for me
In all this world on land or sea        5
Can other worthy treasure be.
 
My love is constant. In her eyes
True, pure, and steadfast, beauty lies
Serene and noble as the skies.
